hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : Miracles happen: A1 onboard audio works!
   posted by DaveAE on 25-Oct-2005 21:46:09 (26243 reads)
This might come as a shock, but I've uploaded a working via686b onboard audio driver for the AmigaOne! Only the first batch(es) of A1's actually have the AC'97 chip physically on the board.

Update: New VIA686B AHI driver on OS4depot


Unfortunately, it was taken off later on as Eyetech didn't think it was ever going to work. You could just try the driver to see if you have such a chip, but you can also have a look on the motherboard: left to the AGP-port, under the gfx card either is a small Sigmatel chip or an empty square. Most people won't have the chip though.

Some clever guy found out what was wrong. I'll mention him later on if he wants to be mentioned, I'm not sure at this moment if he does. Normally, the BIOS/firmware sets up some registers of the VIA that make it work (ACPI), unfortunately back then we thought it was a hardware issue.

This first version is very basic. It is playback only, has CD-in monitoring, but no volume controls etc. This will come soon in a later version.

If you're lucky to have the AC'97 chip, give it a try. If you'll use it, I would appreciate a small donation of 5 euro to paypal@audio-evolution.com.

Kind regards and thanks to the guy who found out about it in the first place!

I realize my comments went against this current euphoric thread. Apparently the sarcasm didn't come through clearly.

Doesn't change the fact that Eyetech didn't deliver as advertised. I expect nothing from, nor have any respect for Eyetech. The fact is at the time I did my Earlybird order I was not aware the sound would not work, nor that they were removing the chip as a result. My dealer did not mention it either. At the same time, I do not track every obscure Amiga related posting on the internet. I even tried to get developer data, as promised under the EarlyBird program, to play around with the chipset myself, and they would not even send a reply.

As for people who complained about paying for unusable chips, I was not one of them. I was just reacting to the notion that Eyetech removed it based upon user complaints, like it was some kind of good thing on their part.

I am truly happy to see Steve and Davy got it to work and some XE owners can make use of it. Much good on them. I am disappointed to find out I am not among the few that can benefit from it.

My rant. Thanks for reading. Enjoy your sound...

@DL

I'm not saying Eyetech did the right thing, cause hindsight is of course quite good

But under the circumstance, I understand why Alan did what he did. And I still think that it's going to work out ok for you as well, you'll just need to find someone who can solder a TQFP48

I do it all the time, so it cannot be THAT difficult, right?

@billt

300$ isn't all that much. This has got to be worth at least 10$ to at least 30 people

Well I am truly grateful to you for getting this to work. It almost brought a tear to my eye listening to mp3s through my A1XE motherboard for the first time.

I posted a new topic in the forum section, so people are aware of the new version without having to look through 160+ posts here. Perhaps it's better to continue discussion over there.

Quite a few surplus-stock websites do carry plenty of these devices requiring only a $US100 minimum order, but they generally deal B2B and not with individuals though. A dealer ordering enough parts would be a possibility.

I'm one!

Shoot, I'd be willing to go $15 or even $20, as it costs that much for a cheapie sound card. Not sure but I think I paid about $16 for the soundblaster that is in it now, which could be used in a PC when I get around to building another system for the kids from the spare parts of old upgrades.

Just checked. I've got the chip as well

I'll be keeping my Terratec Aureon for now though, but good to know that it can be spared if I need a pci-slot in the future

tried it yesterday with the ac97 tool - I have the chip, and the drivers work nicely !
I even took out the SBLive to test it properly - since put it back though !
nice to have that onboard sound, even if I'm not using it !
Kudos to DaveAE !!
